"Despite all the issues, a lot of people still played that first day. According to EA's ongoing forum post detailing the tech efforts to get the game fixed, 29.45 years (or 258,153.19 hours) of gameplay were experienced. Hopefully that doesn't count the time you spent sitting the menu.
More pertinent, though, was that over 5 million kills were counted. The kill count matters 'cause when your chosen platform's global kill count hits 43 million kills, the fourth map, Coral Sea, will be unlocked. No one really had a sense how long this would take, but lets do some simple math to figure it out."
